Today Griffin unveiled the “all-in-one pen,” called the Stylus + Pen + Laser Pointer. While the name leaves something to be desired you simply can’t discount its utilitarian value.
At the core of the device is the always trusty ball point pen, developed October 30, 1888 by a man named John Loud. By contrast, in terms of era, it also contains a laser pointer. If you remove the pen potion from the body, and reverse it, you’ll reveal a soft rubber tip, ideal for touchscreens.
Griffin Technology calls it a “digital Swiss Army knife.” While we can’t help but agree that it might be the ideal answer for a professor or two, it’s a stretch to call it a “Swiss Army knife”.
Nonetheless, you can pick up Griffin’s Stylus + Pen + Laser Pointer for $49.99.
Nashville, TN – September 1, 2011 – Griffin Technology, one of the world’s foremost creators of innovations for everyday life, has announced the launch of the Stylus + Pen + Laser Pointer, a precision tool for projection screen, touchscreen and paper.
“Mobile computing is transforming the way we digest and share new information, and Griffin is at the forefront of this trend, continually launching innovative accessories that address the modern day consumer’s needs,” said Mark Rowan, President of Griffin Technology. “Our latest stylus is like a ‘digital Swiss Army knife’ in the way it maximizes functionality of mobile devices while remaining compact enough to slide easily into your pocket.”

Soft rubber tip designed to mimic the press of a finger, giving users more control as they write, sketch, tap and drag on iPads, iPhones or other touchscreen surfaces
